The Fandom Menace

In 2017, a group of hysterically obsessed Star Wars fans, convinced George Lucas is their spiritual alien leader, found the Cult of Darths. Reading Lucas' films both as religious works and as subtle pro-Dark Side pamphlets, the Cult claims that "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" means there must be historical clues proving the saga really happened, and that the star of Bethlehem was actually the blinding flash of the demolition of the planet Alderaan. In 2029, twenty-seven members commit seppuku with light sabers (by that time an actual weapon); the remainder of the cult dissipates.
